mary j bligeWhat’s up with all these singers with tax problems?

Lauryn Hill is headed to prison over her tax issues and now Mary J. Blige, Hill’s “Miseducation” collaborator, is facing a tax lien of her own, The Associated Press reports.

Court documents show the Internal Revenue Service, on Feb. 7, filed notice of a $3.4 million lien on Blige and her husband, Martin Isaacs, in New Jersey.

The filing shows Blige owed more than $574,000 in federal taxes for the 2009, more than $2.2 million for 2010 and more than $647,000 for 2011. A representative for the seven-time Grammy Award winning singer said Thursday she’s working “with her new team to resolve all these issues as quickly as possible.”
